Net Picks - Cool and Warm Color Palette

This week I'm doing something slightly different for my Net Picks post. Instead of curating a post around a theme, I am collecting images that have a similar color palette.

This palette is made up of cool mints and soft aquas along with warm peaches and corals with gray accents. This color palette can be very versatile depending on what subject matter you choose. I think it makes for a lovely baby girl's color scheme or a nice print for a dress.

  • Esther Fallon Lau - Although I couldn't find any website, I did find Esther's Spoonflower and Society 6 online shops. Also known as Nouveau Bohemian, her work definitely has that boho vibe. Her work is characterized by delicate drawings, soft color palettes and lovely characters. She has a great variety of patterns in her Spoonflower and adorns a lot of different products with her work in her Society 6 shop.

  • Suzy Ultman - I was drawn to Suzy's lovely work a whlle back. My first time seeing her work was when I purchased a lovely book of prints from my beloved (but now defunct) Borders bookstore. Her cute characters and stand out style caught my eye. She has been doing really well and is represented by the wonderful Lilla Roger's Studio art agency. Her style is really versatile and has graced many products from prints, fabric, home decor and toys. You can find her work on prints in her Etsy shop.

  • Flora Waycott - Flora is also represented by the Lilla Roger's Studio art agency. Her work is very delicate and whimsical. She has been working as a freelance illustrator and textile designer since 2004 and her work can be found on multitudes of products including, prints, textiles, stationery, fabric and publications. She sells a variety of items with her work on her Etsy and Flora's instagram feed is worth checking out too!

  • Sunkissed Laughter - Sunkissed Laughter is a design and photography brand. I'm sorry I wasn't able to find out more about the designer/artist. They do have Etsy and Society 6 shops that you can check out. Sunkissed Laughter's work is characterized by tropical and geometric prints and a tribal vibe.

Net Picks - Spring Has Sprung! This week's Net Picks focuses on bright, cheery designs that call to Spring! I have to admit that growing up in Hawaii, I really have a narrow view of the seasonal spectrum. I think that we only experience maybe half the seasons: mid spring thru early fall (if that).  Read more...
